XYPRO Pre-Conference Sessions

How to Comply with PCI 3.2 – Multi Factor Authentication

 – Robert Klein


One of the main areas that has changed in PCI-DSS 3.2 is the requirement for Multi Factor Authentication (MFA).  MFA is required for all non-console administrative access to the Cardholder Data Environment (CDE).  Anyone who has access to the CDE (NonStop systems or applications) from anywhere other than the NonStop System Console is now required to be authenticated using MFA.

Many NonStop Security Administrators can implement MFA using tools they already have.

XYGATE User Authentication (XUA) is included on all HPE NonStop servers shipped since September, 2013.  XUA Integrates NonStop authentication with a variety of authentication mechanisms, including Active Directory, LDAP, RADIUS and RSA SecurID.  These provide MFA support for the HPE NonStop Server, addressing the PCI DSSrequirement for all non-console based access “out of the box”.

Join XYPRO for a NonStop TBC Pre-Conference Education session, taking you through implementing XUA for Multi-factor authentication in a NonStop environment as well as securing your NonStop against today’s threats and addressing compliance.


Sign up for this pre-con session and learn how to take advantage of the rich security tools you already have on your NonStop server.  


A Practical Approach to Tuning NonStop SQL Queries.

 – John Furlong


Improving the performance of your SQL queries is often the easiest and safest way to help reduce response time and increase throughput.

SQL query tuning is the process of adjusting a SQL query to make it run faster, while returning the same results as before.

Join Merlon and XYPRO for a NonStop TBC Pre-Conference Education session that describes a practical approach to query tuning using the Merlon SQLXPress Visual Query Tuner.

During the session you will learn how to:

  • Understand the existing execution plan.
  • Determine the desired execution plan.
  • Change the database or query to get the desired plan.
  • Confirm that the new plan improves performance.

Register for this pre-con session and learn how to apply a disciplined approach to improving both NonStop SQL/MX and NonStop SQL/MP query performance.

Proactive Risk Management – How NFCU Stays Ahead of the Threat

 – Kelvin Anderson


Proactive risk management, control and visibility into your HPE NonStop infrastructure is the ideal way to protect your company’s assets and reduce the risk of loss through insider threats, misuse, non-compliance and security breaches. Join Kelvin Anderson from Navy Federal Credit Union as he discusses their usage of the  next generation of comprehensive, NonStop security solutions. Kelvin will describe Navy Federal’s approach to using a single pane of glass to control and to contextualize NonStop security through intelligence, policy management, data protection, risk management and security analytics.



Highlighted Sessions

Security Analytics and Threat Analysis

 – Steve Tcherchian


Greater visibility and proactive analysis of data enables faster detection and better response times to thwart a  high impact cyber incident.  Attackers have learned that blending their activity in as innocuous user behavior hides their actions as they move around the system. This is the concept of the “low and slow” attack.


XYGATE SecurityOne (XS1) detects NonStop event patterns and uniquely evaluates their context in real time to identify suspicious activity. XS1 uses specialized security intelligence algorithms to correlate, contextualize and analyze events to paint a detailed security incident picture.  Security operators can hone in on and detect security events before they become an incident or breach. By identifying anomalous behavior, XS1 profiles and alerts on compromised accounts or those being used by malicious insiders.


In this session we’ll also be introducing the newest features of XS1 including

  • CLIM Risk Management,
  • Multi-Platform Data Support for Linux and Windows and
  • Machine Learning. Come and find out!


XYGATE: The best investment we ever made in NonStop Security 

 – Steve Tcherchian


Defining a security policy is essential to protecting your NonStop system and complying with regulations like PCI DSS.  Applying a security policy is not a one-time event.  Managing system settings, access rules and security configurations is an ongoing requirement that must account for new users, new objects, new rules or other system changes.  In a complex environment there may be thousands of security parameters that need to be measured, managed and reported.—Manually monitoring and measuring security compliance is not feasible.t’s time consuming and prone to human error.  


In this session,  a customer discusses their experience using XYGATE Compliance Solutions and why they say XYPRO’s approach to maintaining security best practices and compliance was the best investment they ever made in NonStop Security!


The Best NonStop SQL Management: Functionality and Security

 – John Furlong


SQLXPress is an easy-to-use Windows interface for comprehensive management of HPE NonStop SQL databases. Its modular design supports SQL/MX, SQL/MP, or both.


NonStop database managers need powerful database management tools and often, highly-privileged access rights.  However, this poses some very serious security risks.  Now, with Merlon SQLXPress 3.50, NonStop customers can have both security and an easy-to-use, Windows interface for comprehensive management of HPE NonStop SQL databases.  

In this session, we will show the most functional graphical database management solution for NonStop SQL and strong security protection.
